Northamptonshire Wedding Photography – Tracy & Gary’s Wedding Story

Real Wedding Photojournalism – The Saracen’s Head, Little Brington, Northants

Tracy & Gary were clear from the outset that they wanted a very natural and unobtrusive approach to their wedding story and that’s why my wedding photojournalism approach really appealed to them.  Their wedding was to be in the rural heart of England, in a little Northamptonshire village called Little Brington, so they wanted wedding photography that would be low key but captured all the key moments and natural story of the day. Hence why wedding journalism perfectly matched their needs.

An Historic and Charming Northamptonshire Wedding Venue

The Saracen’s Head, which hosted the entire wedding, is a 17th century village inn, constructed in traditional Northamptonshire stone and still boasts original beams and wooden floors. It would be fair to say that as a Northamptonshire wedding venue it is full of intimate charm, character and rural history.  The bridal preparations took place in a number of rooms above the inn itself. As you’d expect of such a historic building that meant low ceilings and creaky floors – all of which added to the charm of proceedings.

The Fun and Laughter of the Bridal Preparations

By now, regular readers amongst you will know that, as a wedding photojournalist, I love the bridal preparations.  It’s the part of the day where there’s an intriguing mix of excitement, anticipation and high emotions – all of which make for fantastic wedding photos and the kind of natural moments that a wedding photojournalist thrives on – and Tracy’s preparations weren’t to disappoint. Although things did start to get a little frantic with the tying of the wedding dress taking a lot longer than expected, ensuring the bride was both traditionally and fashionably late for the wedding service.

The Flower Girl Reduces Everyone to Tears.

The wedding ceremony was an intimate and moving service, with Gary looking dapper next to his beautiful and blushing bride. However, it was Tracy’s daughter Kirsten, acting as flower girl, who virtually stole show with a very moving yet confident reading that reduced everyone to tears, including the bride and groom themselves.  It’s these fleeting movements that wedding photojournalism excels at capturing and ensures the wedding story is both a genuine and honest one.

Bouncy Castles & Horses

Having opted for my Wedding Storyteller collection, once the ceremony was complete, it was out into the rural setting of the village for the more traditional wedding portraits, included in my most popular wedding photography package. In addition, Tracy and Gary had laid on a bouncy castle in the inn’s grounds – which the adults enjoyed as much (if not almost more so!) than the kids. Again, this was a fantastic opportunity as a wedding photojournalist to document some really fun and amusing wedding photos.  Behind the bouncy castle was a small paddock, in which were a couple of horses that attracted a number of guests to make a fuss of them.  Again, this too good a situation to miss as a wedding photojournalist.

The Marquee of Love & Chin-Ups!

The wedding reception itself took place in a light and airy marquee, attached to the rear of the Saracen’s Head.  This really was a perfect setting for the toasts and speeches and the evening entertainment.  Tracy’s father, Len, gave an amusing speech about his daughter but here the show was stolen by the Best Man’s son giving him a reassuring hug before the speeches. Much of the entertainment was provided by the fantastic singer Joe Seagar before the wedding disco kicked in for the evening.  The pub’s old beams did provide an opportunity for guests to practice the odd chin up or two – again too good an opportunity for a wedding photojournalist to miss!

Documenting The Real Story Of Your Wedding. Never Dictating it.

My Wedding Stories show you a chronological selection of photos from throughout a REAL wedding day, rather than just images specially selected for a portfolio (us photographers love to do that.)  After all, your wedding photography should be about your entire day rather than the very best images from the day.  I hope this not only gives you a feel of a whole wedding day but also demonstrates how my wedding photojournalism captures the natural moments, candid emotions and real events of the day – without the need to set up or stage fake moments. If you are getting married and enjoy my documentary wedding photography approach, then I’d really love to chat to you about your plansSend me an email here.  You can see my current collections and prices here.

Or call me on 07920 422144.
